I have not watched any of his videos because I do not like rap, but I really like everything I've seen from Rap Critic on Todd in the Shadows and he probably has a good show

The Rap Critic is pretty cool, although he definitely suffers from the poo poo camera mentioned on the last page.

lmao him making fun of his mario mispronunciation.

That's the normal way of pronouncing Mario in the UK.

The way that actual Italian people say the name 'Mario' sounds like you could go with either depending on how you chose to hear it.

Faust looks amazing. This is one of the few Best of the Worst episodes that makes me want to get one of the movies. All Brian Yuzna movies come out the same by the last reel, I guess.

I wonder if he knows there are fetish clubs in his town that he could go to instead of making movies.

So this showed up on the #ChangeTheChannel hashtag from an anonymous source:

-Brad resigned quietly on Thursday, but supposedly so have the Walkers as well as Tamara and Malcom, leaving Mike and his brother Greg alone at CA
-a few more critic/snob episodes may show up on the site because they were already filmed and submitted
-the five are apparently looking for lawyers to deal with this mess but for now are going to stay incognito on a discord while they sort things out. Doug and Rob especially will not be saying anything for a few weeks.

It's rather hard to confirm or deny but if they're looking for a lawyer they're going to be keeping their heads down.

The Strip Panel Naked guy is some brand of Middle Eastern, but you mostly don't see him and he talks like a boring white guy so I dunno if that counts.

The joke was that there were originally 2 Hobbit movies planned but then it suddenly expanded to 3, so Lindsay repeatedly said she only was going to do 2 until the reveal at the end of the video. Pretty certain she fully intends to do a 3rd video about the effects the movie had on New Zealand.

Based on that teaser at the end of part 2, I suspect it will be largely around the underhanded means in which Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor used to get the film made, and how it hosed over basically everyone working in the film industry in NZ.

There were talks of industrial action by one or several of the unions active in the film industry in NZ over something - can't remember what specifically - and Jackson and Taylor claimed that Warner Brothers were going to pull filming out of New Zealand and take it to Central Europe (Prague or somewhere like that). The then-government, the centre-right National Party, invites Warner execs over, throws money at them and then changes the law which drastically strips away the employment rights of anyone working on a film crew in NZ, reclassifying them as "independent contractors." Later, Peter Jackson gets some email correspondence related to the matter pried out of him through this law called the Official Information Act, and it is revealed that prior to his public proclamations of Hobbitty Doom, he had received assurances that The Hobbit had too much riding on it to be targeted from any industrial action. In other words, he lied, and has continued to lie about it. The happy ending is that the National Party lost the 2017 Election, and one of the first things the newly-elected Labour Party did was repeal the so-called "Hobbit Law."

How big is Salon as a publication, exactly? I don't really know what this means.

So that fellow is a distant cousin of mine. We don't really talk, though we're Facebook friends so I can keep up with his writing. I have my Twitter account hooked to my Facebook account so they get reposted there and I'm now curious whether he found about this through the ever increasing twitter drama or if he noticed my many many tweets and retweets on ChangeTheChannel over the last month.

Oh no oh god it's all true!


Back in the day I tried to get onto Channel Awesome. I was in college and me and my friends would watch Doug's stuff and then moved on to watching other things; I was a big fan of Lindsay Ellis and Spoony, and from him I heard about Brad and got into his stuff. It was great! Never made it on the site, though, partly because I didn't try long enough or hard enough, really. Though for a while I used to look back and think about having missed out on this amazing opportunity to work with these amazing people and do some great, creative work.

This whole situation makes me feel like the effort I put into that, and, hell, the fact I was ever a fan of Doug Walker at all, it was all a waste. What a loving waste of time. I'm glad some good people came out of it but the Walkers are going to still be making a ton of money out of this and out of their exploitation of their employees and it makes me sick.
